[Ryan Trojan]
So, I think the first pro is IR is moving more clinical, and so as we move more clinical, this is a huge piece. I think for practices that perform E&M, it's just better clinical care for the patients and it's a better patient experience. So, if you come see, I'm going to see you in consult, depending on the procedure, and then I'm going to see you for the procedure, and then any day you're in the hospital, I'm going to come in and see you and drop a note.

So, number one, I think it's better patient care. Number two, it's documentation. I think, especially if you're on-call on the weekends and there's a really sick patient and you decide not to intervene, then those are patients I would go see and put a consult note in so it's in the record as to why I didn't intervene. So many times interventional radiologists don't go see the patients and then stuff gets put in the chart that may not be accurate.

The third thing obvious would be increased work RV revenue. So, when you look at a vascular surgeon, for example, they get about 20% of their work RV revenue from E&M coding. I feel like as interventional radiologists we can do the same. You can have a 10% to 20% boost in your work RV revenue if you perform E&M coding.
